About Dakota City Heritage Village

Location:

4008 220th Street W, Farmington, MN 55024, US

Mission Statement

Dakota City Heritage Village connects modern generations to the past rural life and agricultural heritage in Dakota County through living history interpretation, education, and the collection, preservation, and exhibition of information, objects and buildings.

Description

Dakota City Heritage Village offers visitors the chance to experience rural life in 1900-era Dakota County. A recreated historic village and museum, Dakota City is located on the Dakota County Fairgrounds on the south edge of Farmington. Dakota City's five-acre site includes 23 buildings that help to tell the story of life in a 1900 rural town. Dakota City offers special events throughout the year where visitors will experience living history firsthand with costumed interpreters and demonstrations. The Village and Museum are also open for educational programs, senior groups, celebrations and tours by reservation.

As urban sprawl obliterates America's agricultural past, Dakota City connects families to the agricultural and immigrant past of Dakota County communities where they now live. Dakota City focuses on how rural communities functioned 100 years ago and how residents met their need for food, shelter, clothing and social interaction.

In Ahlberg Heritage Center, visitors can view permanent and temporary displays on Dakota County and Minnesota social and rural history, with an emphasis on agriculture. With more than 7,000 artifacts in the collection, Dakota City staff develops educational and engaging exhibits around its vast agricultural and material objects.
